The van Driest damped mixing length has been extended to account for the effects of mass transfer through a porous plate into a turbulent, two-dimensional incompressible boundary layer. The present mixing length is continuous from the wall through to the inner-law region of the flow, and although empirical, has been shown to predict wall shear stress and heat transfer data for a wide range of blowing rates.
